Though refugee returns from to Syria are halted nationally in Germany, some states have begun implementing their own return programmes, including Hesse, which gives financial help to refugees who want to return home. The work entails travelling to Hesse to learn about their programmes: how their returns-counselling works; who has applied to return; why they’ve left; and what happens to them after they go back to Syria.
